full name / name of organization: 
Burning Daylight Academic Journal

Burning Daylight is an annual student journal published through Sonoma State University's Department of English graduate program dedicated to providing a place for the emergent voices in the field of literature. We publish original critical and theoretical essays from B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. students that represent the current work, trends, and thoughts in literary criticism, composition, and rhetoric. We are open to (and excited about) reading submissions that push at these boundaries - if in doubt, please submit.

Submission Guidelines:

Burning Daylight accepts submissions from October 1, 2013 through January 1, 2014. Essays must be original work, not under review for publication elsewhere, by students from the baccalaureate and post-baccalaureate levels. All essay submissions must be sent via email to the editor of Burning Daylight at burningdaylight@sonoma.edu. Submissions must contain both a cover letter and the essay as two separate Microsoft Word document attachments. In order to facilitate blind review, do not have any identifying markers on your essay. Submissions will not be returned.

Essay Submission Guidelines:
 Our page limit has been expanded to 10-20 double-spaced pages , MLA format, standard 12 point font.

Cover letters must include the following: author's name, phone number, email address, degree in progress, name of the institution where the degree is being pursued, and the title of the essay.

Please feel free to review previous issues of our journal, but do not feel constrained by the contents - please see them only as inspiration, a guideline or a starting point for your own contribution.
